Welcome to our site!  

Who are you?
ArtStory is a grassroots collective of professional freelance artists and designers who want to offer their skills of illustration, infographics, and animation for free to organizations who are helping to build a better future. 

Why?
There are a considerable number of people and organization that are doing incredible work, but have very little budgets for marketing, promotion, advertising, and raising awareness of an issue.  Art, in all of its various forms, is great at this, so we want to use our skills to help encourage positive change.

Some of the categories we're interested in offering free services to are the ones helping to reverse global warming:
  • educating women and girls of developing nations (family planning, and college / university education)
  • food security (managing food waste, no till farming, regenerative agriculture, plant-based diets)
  • renewable energy (solar, wind, geothermal)
  • reducing greenhouse gases / fossil fuel dependency (any of the many alternatives)
  • appropriate technologies 
  • reducing energy use
There are so many organizations that are doing great work within these subjects, and many others, and we want to either assist them, or create our own content from research gathered from the best sources.

That's it! 

How do we do it?

With your support. If you'd like these organizations to have professional illustration, infographics, and animated content, consider giving us $1 a month.

Yes, that's $12 a year. The same amount of a good sandwich. With enough people supporting us in this small, crowdfunded way, we hope to spend more time on this, and less time working for larger corporations, until eventually we can abandon that work altogether to help those changing the world.
